definitely will second Rush. Have you seen that new documentary out? If not it's a must see. Focus is primarily on the older stuff which is the stuff I like. Didn't care for them at all after signals when they let the keyboard become the dominant instrument. Also what else it cool is they are FINALLY getting respect. There are a bunch of interviews from current musicians from today's crew of hard rock - Kirk Hammet, Billy Corgan, Les Claypool, Pantera, Rage Against the Machine, and a bunch I'm forgetting that were heavily influenced by them and heap praise.

Thanks for that Zep link Jots. You never know what to believe anymore with live releases.

I did see that Rush bio. I never knew that Rush toured with KISS in the early days and became good friends. Lots of other good info on the band as well.
